When looking more closely at social inclusion challenges experienced in urban territories worldwide, migration usually takes a central role. This section explores how local governments are pioneering proximity-based solutions to build welcoming urban territories, cooperating with other local governments and civil society to exchange knowledge and push for new narratives based on human rights in order to make sure that the right to the city works for everyone.
In the framework of the UCLG-CSIPDHR, local governments can advance collective initiatives that render the right to the city for all concrete. The Committee offers a meaningful space for local governments to share knowledge and advance political networking addressing the social inclusion of migrants from a policy innovation and co-creation perspective. This action plan is mainly built around our cooperation with the MC2CM project and UCLG Migration department.
Local governments participating in our Committee have developed very relevant and innovative policy experiences on the ground. Indeed, these local commitments have been a cornerstone for their participation in international networking initiatives on human rights and the right to the city. This section will allow you to explore some of these relevant policy experiences more in-depth, including profiles to some of the most active local governments of our network.
